Start organizing your neighborhood to participate in the 36th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 6, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Join Fremont Police staff along with community organizations, neighborhood groups, and City leaders in celebrating the 36th Annual National Night Out.
In years past, neighborhoods have participated in National Night Out by organizing a social gathering such as a block party, barbecue, or ice cream social where neighbors share good food, laughter, and updates on neighborhood happenings. National Night Out provides the opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other better and sends a strong message to criminals that our community will look out for each other by reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. Throughout the night, City staff will make visits to the registered parties where they will share information, network, and answer questions that community members may have.
Registration is open for Fremont community members to register their parties to participate in this year’s event. Register your event with the Fremont Police Department. The registration deadline is 5 p.m. on July 30, 2019, to be considered for a visit by the Police or Fire Department. Our goal is to provide each party with one visit from City staff, but it will depend upon the number of parties and staff who sign up to participate.
Requests for a visit from the Fire Department must be made separately. First register your party and then contact Pam Franklin by e-mail or call 510-494-4200.
If you plan to block off your street for your celebration, you will need to obtain a block party permit from the City of Fremont by contacting Barbara Yee-Charlson at 510-494-4561 or by e-mail. The deadline to file for a permit is Friday, July 5, 2019. The cost of the permit is $20. More information is available on Special Event Permits.
